Luxfer's new carbon-composite cylinders are the lightest-weight, strongest medical oxygen cylinders in the world. They're also up to 30% lighter than all-aluminum cylinders. Luxfer carbon-composite cylinders provide oxygen in much smaller, easy-to-carry packages that greatly enhance lifestyles of ambulatory patients and make therapists' jobs easier. And these new Luxfer cylinders are non-magnetic, ideal fro use near magnetic-sensitive equipment such as MRI units.
